77. Not only that....

These studies have a bad habit of measuring vegetarians against normal, crappy, Standard American Diets. Because of the very reasons most people pick vegetarianism or veganism, they are inherently more likely to have a healthy diet than Joe/Jane Blow on the street who eats a SAD. This study said it adjusted for various factors, but one of those factors was not 'unhealthy standard diet'. I'd like to see a head-to-head study comparing those who eat Paleo diets, vegan diets, vegetarian diets (and all the subsets of that), those who eat 'healthy low-fat' diets and so on. Just comparing vegetarianism to random people (the majority of whom know zilch about nutrition) is not a ground breaking study. It's not a true comparison. You could almost compare ANY kind of 'fad' diet to the normal SAD and get better results.
